        Collection of Correspondence from Pin-Up Artist Alberto Vargas

      1973 - A collection of 12 letters, cards, and publicity photos from Alberto Vargas and his wife, Anna Mae Clift, to a devoted collector, including an Autographed Note Signed ("Alberto") and three Christmas cards Signed with his stylized signature, fine. The letters and notes begin in 1961 and end shortly before the passing of Clift in 1973, a death from which Vargas never truly recovered. The letters are in response to complimentary notes sent by the collector to Vargas and include many references to his work. Each is composed with warmth and they include details about the couple's personal lives including Vargas's experience judging the Miss Universe contest and his lawsuits against *Esquire* magazine. (The magazine successfully laid claim to the term "Varga Girl" as well as the "Varga" signature, and the legal costs forced him to struggle financially for years until his 1960s "Vargas Girls" work for *Playboy*.) One of the Christmas cards includes a note from Vargas gifting the collector an unpublished original piece of artwork for being a "staunch defender and protector of 'my girls'"; a gift that sadly no longer accompanies the letter. The correspondence also includes five glossy publicity photos from World Wide Photo, dated between 1944-1949, showing Vargas with Clift, working at his drawing table, and with various models, along with the original prepared captions tipped on the verso. Several of the letters are written by Clift and one includes a comment about Vargas's devotion to his work: "He is truly a remarkable person. But without his work he would be lost." It's a particularly poignant thought from his wife, whose death left him devastated and ended his career. Further details available upon request. An interesting and thoughtful collection of correspondence and photos from one of the greatest pin-up artist of the 20th Century, and the wife who inspired his work. Further details available upon request.

        The Longest Yard (Original screenplay, rainbow copy)

      Paramount, Los Angeles 1973 - Revised Final Script for the 1974 film, "The Longest Yard," directed by Robert Aldrich, written for the screen by Tracy Keenan Wynn and Albert S. Ruddy (though only Wynn is credited here), and starring Burt Reynolds, Eddie Albert, and Bernadette Peters. Ex-football star Burt Reynolds ends up in a prison run by sadistic sports-nut Warden Eddie Albert. Reynolds is strong-armed into forming an inmate football team, which instills an unexpected esprit de corps previously lacking in the prisoners' lives. Using an element normally only found in boxing pictures, Reynolds is pressured by the opposing team (run by the prison guards, of course) to throw the game or else forfeit his parole. The football game that consumes the last third of the film is one of the more impressive set pieces of early 1970s cinema. Green studio wrappers, with die-cut title window on the front wrapper, gilt-stamped with the Paramount logo. Title page present, stating REVISED FINAL, with a date of September 6, 1973, and a credit for screenwriter Wynn. 120 leaves, mechanically reproduced, with yellow, blue, and pink revision pages throughout (a "rainbow" copy, consisting almost entirely of rewrites), dated variously between 9/19/73 and 10/15/73. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads. In a custom quater leather clamshell box. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        AMERGIN. The White Stag: An Enigma of the Forest. The ORIGINAL 1st DRAFT MSS.

      1973 - Sven Berlin was a poet, a painter, a sculptor, a dancer and a writer. His 1962 roman-a-clef novel The Dark Monarch, a work written with the prime motive of venting Berlin's personal anger over the hypocrisies of an over- close and competitive art St. Ives art colony, was not well received by his fellow art colony members, who all too easily recognized themselves within the pages of the text. The book was withdrawn after four successful libel actions. Contrary to what some writers report, Berlin did not abandon the genre of fiction following the unpleasantness that The Dark Monarch brought. In 1964 he published his novel Jonah's Dream: A Meditation on Fishing, a volume full of Berlin's accomplished and sensitive vignettes of fish and fishermen, and in 1971, his knowledge of the gypsy counter-culture emerged in his novel Dromengo: Man of the Road. It would be a full seven years before Amergin appeared. The story is a mystical fable of encounters between a man, a woman, and a stag in ÒThe Great Forest in the South.Ó Berlin writes of himself:I have always had to contend with the problems of painting, sculpture, and writing as three aspects of one personal express in an attempt to reach full realization and understanding of the world in which I find myself, which is the purpose of my life - and to investigate material experience with spirit by imagination. Beauty of form with poetic insight is the unattainable target.Chris Stevens of the Guardian wrote on January 4, 2000: ÒSven Berlin, who has died aged 88, was a dancer, painter, sculptor, poet, and writer of fiction, biography and autobiography. As one of the last great British bohemians, he established a reputation in the conservative environment of postwar St. Ives, with his long hair, beard, eccentric dress and earring. Sadly, his fame was never matched by his reputation as an artist.ÓMany of Berlin's publications drew upon personal experience. Berlin was part of the D-Day invasions of World War II, having rejected his former stance of conscientious objector, but the experience led to a breakdown and he returned to Cornwall to find restitution through his art. From that time on, the redemptive, restorative and spiritual power of art and nature would remain his guiding principle. The same theme runs through his works, including the two volumes of his 'autosvenography': The Coat of Many Colours and Virgo in Exile, that being a belief in the abstract and mystical forces that guide both nature and humankind. His writing is rich in imagery and metaphor, exhibiting an often dream-like quality. This manuscript is no exception. Hand-made paper wrappers. 39 cream, clay-coated A4 leaves (23 x 32 cm.) and one sheet (25.3 x 20.3 cm.) comprising the text; 14 (twelve 20.3 x 25.3 cm. and two 20.3 x 19.8 cm.) loose sheets containing splendid pen and ink (black) drawings used as illustrations; one sheet with Berlin's notes in blue ink as to placement of the illustrations (17.3 x 10 cm.); and one sheet (20.3 x 30.4 cm.) with chapter notes, directions to the typist, table of contents, etc., written in red, blue, green and black ink. An intriguing manuscript written in Berlin's strong hand with his large, bold illustrations, rich in imagery and metaphor; an important and interesting artifact of this fascinating and colorful novelist/artist.

        A Collection of Children's & Young Adult books published by Abelard-Schuman (1956-1973)

      Abelard-Schuman; Criterion Books, London, New York 1973 - A collection of 126 children's books, books for young adults, as well as some works for adults, published by Abelard-Schuman and their affiliate Criterion Books, from the private library of Lew and Frances Schwartz, the firm owners. They were published between 1956 and 1973, with most dating from the 1960s. Most are first editions, including many Advance Review copies, in good or very good condition. All are in their original dustwrappers. In its heyday Abelard-Schuman was a small but active quality firm owned by the husband-wife team of Lew and Frances Schwartz, with offices in London, New York and Toronto. Frances was a specialist in juvenile books, thus this became the specialty of the house, along with science-fiction and fantasy, mysteries, and historical surveys, aimed primarily at young adults, but also including some novels for adults. The firm also specialized in new and up and coming authors, the best known being Isaac Asimov, and illustrators such as Franz Josef Tripp, Michael Foreman, and others. In 1960 the firm purchased Criterion Books, which also specialized in young adult books. Throughout the 1960s the Abelard-Schuman/Criterion imprint retained its prestige and earned its bread and butter principally through sales to libraries. Thus it is rare to find an Abelard-Shuman book without library markings, and as the survival rate of children's and young adult books is notoriously low in any event, this is an unusually nice collection. Some notable titles include *For The King* by Ronald Welch [pseudonym of Ronald Oliver Felton], *Pyewacket* by Rosemary Weir, *The Wise Man of Schilda* and *The Little Ghost* by Otfried Preussler (both illustrated by F.J. Tripp), and the novel *A Jack Is a King* Inscribed by the author Norman Keifetz to Lew Schwartz. A detailed description of the archive is available upon request.

An exceptional association between two of the most preeminent bibliographers (indeed arguable THE two most) of the 20th century.

        GRAVITY'S RAINBOW

      NY: Viking, (1973) - Fine First Edition copy of the reclusive author's landmark third novel. At 760 pages, a massive opus in breadth and scope, as well as in major literary significance, this winner of the National Book Award was also awarded the prestigious William Dean Howells Medal for best work of fiction to appear in the United States over a five-year period. While many less-than-presentable copies appear on the market, this copy is truly fine, in its original first state dust jacket, bright and crisp, without the spine-fading endemic to this title, equally fine but for a single half-inch closed tear to the upper real panel and the most miniscule, really negligible, rubbing to the tips. A beautiful example. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gravity's Rainbow

      Viking, New York 1973 - 1st edition/1st printing, Viking, 1973. 1 of 4000 copies printed in the 1st printing run, and very scarce with no fading to the spine of the 1st issue dustjacket with the $15 price, the code 0273 on the front flap, and the SBN number in white on the back panel. Straight, clean, tight book with the orange upper page edges unblemished and with no handwriting or soiling in the book, with just the usual small touch of softening to the cloth at the spine ends. The Near Fine+ price intact dustjacket is crisp, clean, unfaded, with a short uncreased wrinkle to the upper front panel, but otherwise without fault. Truly a lovely example of this scarce classic! 670348325 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Lithograph]: "D'apres Schatz"

      1973. Original lithograph in black and orange. Image size: 11.75" x 18.5" (with margins 16" x 23.25"). Glazed and framed. Hand Inscribed, titled, signed, and dated by Miller below image: "For Sydney Omarr -- 'D'apres Schatz -- Henry Miller 1973." Scene of the inside of an apartment with a naked man smoking on a bed, while a naked woman washes at a sink, and with a horse in the foreground. Unexamined out of the frame, but all indications are that the lithograph is in fine condition. Old label, contemporary with the frame, indicating the lithograph was framed in Santa Monica, California. Omarr was a close friend of Miller's and the "astrologer to the stars." He published a daily horoscope that appeared in more than 200 newspapers and his books of horoscopes sold over 50 million copies. He started out during the Second World War at the age of 17 when his predictions of horse races, boxing matches, and other sporting events were broadcast on Armed Forces Radio. Like Miller, Omarr surrounded himself with beautiful women and was the personal adviser to Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak, and Mae West, among others. .
